Lines

#8300

Went back to #8300 from last Wednesday. This time I started by drawing lines on top of the existing composition. Starting a secondary conversation–quiet but seems to take the eye around in contrast to the extreme vertical composition of the shapes. Soft Curves add some relief. Such a little thing, adding lines, but actually I have never done this on a painting in quite this way. Still surprised that something happens at all when I have no plan and sometimes not as much drive to show up at all. This painting is still getting better and it’s been extremely easy so far. I hope that I can keep it from getting too precious. Then it will surely lose some of it’s strength.
